Beautiful, Suspended ‘Grass People’ Sculptures
By Erwan Xiao, 09 Jul 2013
Paris-based artist Mathilde Roussel has created a series of beautiful, suspended grass sculptures titled ‘Lives Of Grass’.
Created from recycled metal, fabric, soil and wheat seeds, the grass sculptures are meant as an investigation of the impact of growing and eating food and the “cyclic metamorphoses that transform organic matter, whether vegetable, animal or human”.
She said, “Through these anthropomorphic and organic sculptures made of soil and wheat grass seeds, I strive to show that food, its origin, its transport, has an impact on us beyond its taste. The power inside it affects every organ of our body. Observing nature and being aware of what and how we eat makes us more sensitive to food cycles in the world—of abundance, of famine—and allows us to be physically, intellectually and spiritually connected to a global reality”.
